Good Monday morning!
Plan for a slow morning drive with reduced visibility and slick, snow-covered roads. A coating up to 1-3″ of fresh powder blankets the area on Monday, as a warm front lifts to the northeast. This afternoon and evening, snow tapers off, though a few flurries or pockets of freezing drizzle may linger overnight in the mountains. Some rain drops may mix in with those snowflakes after lunchtime in the Champlain Valley. High temp, low to mid 30s. Light southeast wind 5-15 mph.
Tuesday, skies gradually become partly sunny on our only quiet day of the week. Temps continue to moderate with a high in the upper 30s. Tuesday night into Wednesday, another weak disturbance brings scattered snow showers and, again, a dusting up to a couple inches will pile up. Wednesday afternoon, with valley highs near 40, I wouldn’t rule out a few rain showers, instead of snow showers.
Midweek, we reverse course. Meaning, after a warm-up Monday through Wednesday, temperatures will take a steep dive heading into the weekend. Thursday and Friday, afternoon temps top out in the low to mid 30s; this upcoming weekend, 20s! Overnight lows Saturday night into Sunday fall to the teens or even single digits. And throughout this stretch of colder weather, intermittent snow showers continue with several more inches piling up in the mountains.
Have a fantastic day!
